A violent crime wave has hit Chicago and Democratic cities across the country. Shootings are up 220% in Chicago compared to last year, according to the Chicago Sun Times. The city is on pace to have its worst violent crime wave in 25 years. The murder rate is set to increase yet again this year following a 30 percent increase in 2020. Despite this, people in big cities continue to reliably vote Democrat, trading one corrupt, incompetent mayor out for another. One Chicago resident who works for the city as a police dispatcher is tired of it. The Daily Mail Reports–
A police dispatcher has labelled Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot ‘a disgrace’ for allowing the city to become a ‘death zone’ after murders hit a 25-year high.
Keith Thornton Jr. posted a video to Facebook on Christmas Eve slamming Lightfoot as well as the Superintendent of Police David Brown for failing to support the force.
He said he had been compelled to speak up because ‘several of my officers have texted me that they were scared … They have no backing and they’re scared of being out there by themselves, working in the 16th District.’
Thornton said officers in the district, which is in the northwest of the city, were so ‘shorthanded’ that if you call 911 from the area ‘officers are not coming to you.’
He said this wasn’t petty crimes – this was ‘females being beaten’ as well as stabbings and shootings.
‘A shooting came up a few days ago and we couldn’t even get a unit over there. A unit could not even get to that scene until 10 plus minutes later because there was no one,’ Thornton told viewers.
